Here you can read answers to common questions people interested in blinds and shades tend to have. For more information, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

Should I combine window shades with curtains?

It all depends on your preferences. You should know that you can purchase shades which let in the maximum amount of light when opened and block it completely when closed. The choices before you depend on the needs of the room in question (privacy, insulation, etc) and the design styles that best suit your tastes.

Is it possible to cover a bigger window with several sets of smaller blinds?

Practically speaking, yes, it's possible. You just have to decide if this will be aesthetically appealing and if it'll still be easy to operate the window treatments. Of course, with motors and controls from brands like Somfy and Lutron, it's possible to sync up the movement of different sets of blinds. Contact us to schedule a free consultation with an expert that will offer you all the information you need on the subject.

What kinds of blinds are suitable for smaller rooms?

You should definitely pick ones with wider horizontal slats as they make the windows appear bigger. You should also consider lighter colors as they also create the optical illusion of a larger. Keep in mind that your options aren’t limited to white, and there's a variety of shades you can choose from. Giving the room a little extra decor will make it stand out and improve the environment and feeling inside it.

Which rooms of the house are Roman shades best suited for?

Given their unique aesthetic appeal, Roman shades are great for practically any room. Most people install them in their living rooms and dining rooms to enhance the decor. They can be perfect for master bedrooms as well. Now you just need to decide what level of opacity and which design style best suits your needs and tastes.

How do I measure the windows for fitting blinds or shades?

You should measure the area that you want the treatment to cover. This area depends on the design of your windows and on your preferences on where the new shades should hang. In many cases, you can have the window treatment set within the frame. It's best to leave the window measuring to experts, however, to ensure your new custom made shades fit perfectly and don't let any light in from the sides.

Which are the most suitable blinds for sliding patio doors?

The vertical blinds are usually the preferred option for sliding glass doors, as they're longer and can more easily cover larger surfaces. They can offer blackout conditions, sheer visibility and even cellular insulation. The choice comes down to your preference and needs, so it's a good idea to consult with professionals to get a clearer understanding of the matter.
